Okay, well I've been trying to change my opening repertoire around a little and being a French Defense player I've been a little loathe to hop right into a Najdorf Sicilian. So I've gone with the Hyperaccelerated Dragon touted by Lev Alburt / Roman Dzindzichashvili.

So far I'm not entirely impressed. The two games I have going with it currently seem to be boiling down to rook and pawn endgames.

Maybe I just need to get better at rook and pawn endgames - or maybe I should try the Najdorf! (Or maybe just go back to French defense and get REALLY good at it).
